If a star were to become extinguished, beneath the flames would be exposed the same patterns seen on the human brain. It would become even more evidently clear then that the sun is the wellspring of consciousness and that life itself is mere imitation of its maker; An aspiration on the part of all living things to become sun-like, themselves each a wellspring of energy and a draw to the attention of others.
It is consciousness, in fact, that is the fundamental aspiration of life. Awareness, awakeness, appearance, acquiescence, acknowledgement, aliveness, aloftness, alertness, attentiveness, and all aspects of alma.
This is why the greatest sin is to dull and numb the senses and the greatest virtue is to seek a state of wakefulness and attentiveness. all other sins and virtues fall within these two extremes; truth on one extreme and falsehood on the other.
A virtuous person, therefore will always be in a state of giving, whereas a sinful person will always be in a state of taking. Do not assume then that by becoming a giver you will consequently become virtuous, but rather that by becoming virtuous, you will inevitably become a giver without even noticing the act itself.
All those able to give without loss, will live eternally.
